DeWalt must think the “win free stuff” gene in tool guys is overpowering.  Yes, you too can enter a contest to win a DeWalt LED light — if you’re willing to give ’em your email address.  “Get spammed a metric bucketful, and we’ll give you a flashlight.”

Why should I give up my privacy for a chance at a plain old LED flashlight — especially when I can buy a 3-C Maglite for under $20?  Will it dust vampires, or signal spaceships, or give us x-ray vision?  No?  Meet us halfway — give us something rechargeable if you plan to spam us.

At least they’re putting up the aluminum beat-down kind and not cheapo plastic ones.

    And this , my friends, is why God invented disposable email addresses. Check out http://www.spamgourmet.com and sites like it. Dewalt gets to send me 20 messages before the email address I used vanishes forever.

    I’m registered with the Dewalt site as well, they actually aint that bad with the spam. I think most places have realized less is more. If an email comes in once a month I will read it, 3 a day forget it.
